Zayn Malik Opens Up About His Relationship with Gigi Hadid

For young twenty-somethings in Hollywood, Zayn Malik and Gigi Hadid are relatively private about their relationship. But in a recent interview with ES Magazine, Malik couldn’t help but gush when asked about his girlfriend of more than a year.

Malik revealed he and Hadid met each other at a Victoria’s Secret party, when the singer recognized the model from a picture, walked up to her, and asked her out on the spot. Soon after, the two went on their first date at a restaurant in NYC and have been inseparable ever since.

“She’s a very intelligent woman. She knows how to carry herself. She’s quite classy and that. She’s not, like, arrogant in any way, she’s confident. She carries it well. She’s cool,” he said when asked about their relationship. And even though he’s the singer, he admitted he enjoys listening to her sing. “She’s got a nice voice, I like her voice.”

Despite their busy schedules, Malik says he and Hadid do their best to spend as much time with each other as possible, which he says means they basically live together. “We haven’t officially swapped keys or anything yet,” he explained, “[but] we live together wherever we are.”

As for what they do when they happen to be on the same continent? Malik revealed he loves to stay home and cook the model her favorite foods. “Steak and potato pie, Sunday roast dinner and Yorkshire pudding,” he said of his specialties. “Yeah, she likes a good Yorkshire pudding.”
